Application Package

Applicants who have been shortlisted are invited to a mandatory orientation session which is held in Kamloops in March. The purpose of the orientation session is to ensure applicants have a clear understanding of the AHT program and the profession. Orientation sessions include: in-depth information about student workload and responsibilities, meeting with AHT faculty and a tour with current students in the program. Applicants will also be required to take a math test and fill out a questionnaire during the orientation session.

An invitation to an orientation session does not guarantee admission into the program.
